Counselling or Psychotherapy?
In Scotland today counselling is the term generally used to describe an activity where a client is able to talk to someone in a confidential safe space with the aim of feeling better and managing things better. Psychotherapy is used to mean a type of therapy which deals with the mind, the psyche. The terms can be used interchangeably. We choose to use them together to give a sense of the breadth of what we offer, from simple non-judgemental confidential listening to creative and well researched techniques, all aimed at helping you feel and function better
The service is available to people of any faith or none and we offer the opportunity to explore issues from a Christian perspective for those who request it. If you have a Christian faith, it is helpful to find a counsellor who can understand your life's issues including your beliefs, doubts and experiences.
Our counsellors create a safe space for people to bring the complex messy reality of who they are, body mind and spirit, to be understood, helped and supported on the journey towards well-being

Put me back on a level, feeling more in control of my life. Brought back my joy.
Realised that I am not alone in the way I feel at times, which was helpful.
The relationship with the counsellor was the most authentic I have had in 3 years of sobriety. It has given me a template as to how I might build positive connections in the future.
